MOBILE – The second annual Knockout Cancer Bass Benefit will take place on Saturday, Oct. 4, to benefit cancer research at Children’s of Alabama. Anglers and friends are invited to participate in the fishing tournament and enjoy a day full of entertainment at Live Oak Landing, located at State Highway 225 in Stockton.
All fishermen will receive a T-shirt and lunch will be provided by Big Daddy’s. The Knockout Cancer Bass Benefit is presented by Children’s and the Alabama Bass Federation Inc., one of the largest state federations with more than 1,000 members.
The event will honor Frances Grace Hirs, 14, of Fairhope. In February 2013, Frances Grace was diagnosed for the third time with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). She first fought cancer as a toddler, and she relapsed at age 9. Frances Grace, along with her parents and the staff at Live Oak Landing are raising money and awareness for the cancer clinic at Children's.
Registration is $100 per person and includes a $10 lunker fee and launch fee. The pre-tournament meeting will begin at 5 a.m. on Oct. 4. The first place winner will receive $1,000, and the second place winner will receive $700. Guaranteed payback applies to fishermen that rank third through tenth places.
